First Twitter, then Facebook and now even Reddit has banned Donald Trump, because when you knock over one domino, you knock them all down.
When you go onto Reddit to find the r/donaldtrump subreddit, you’re immediately met with a disclaimer that reads: This community was banned due to a violation of Reddit’s rules against inciting violence.
You can see it for yourself here.

This is big for Reddit, who are notorious for their controversial threads and subreddits, but mind you, many of them end up getting banned if they are found to violate Reddit’s content policy. But also many don’t get banned, like r/MGTOW and r/TheRedPill, which preach a lot of incel ideology.
It’s not the first time Reddit has blocked a Donald Trump related subreddit. Another group r/The_Donald was banned six months ago, as it was found to breach rule 1, as well as rules 2 and 8 of their new policy.
“All communities on Reddit must abide by our content policy in good faith. We banned r/The_Donald because it has not done so, despite every opportunity,” Reddit wrote in a statement.
“The community has consistently hosted and upvoted more rule-breaking content than average (Rule 1), antagonised us and other communities (Rules 2 and 8), and its mods have refused to meet our most basic expectations.”
This new ban comes after Twitter permanently suspended Donald Trump’s account today. Earlier this week, the platform temporarily suspend the @realDonaldTrump account for “inciting violence”, but after a closer review they chose to permanently suspended his account LOL.

On Friday, Mark Zuckerberg issued a statement to say they have chosen to indefinitely block Trump from using both FB and Instagram. No word yet on LinkedIn, but it’s only a matter of time.
